Why do we need paint grid?Nov 07, 2016
A professional painter will always use a 5 gal paint bucket and bucket grid when rolling. This is much better than a paint roller and paint tray.
Paint grids are used to rid the roller cover of excess paint, overloading of the cover. Use the same range of motion as with a roller tray.
With a paint bucket and bucket grid you can apply more paint in less time and with less effort. Don’t kick the bucket, just get rid of the paint roller tray.
A paint roller grid is a necessary part of a roller set-up when painting with a roller from 2 and 5 gallon pail. A roller grid helps remove excess paint and distributes it evenly on the roller cover to assure even application.
